Sarah Evans writes, "Last week I hosted my first ever tweetup... A few hours before the tweetup I managed to persuade a new Twitter friend, Brent Payne, to come and hang out... He was going to take the train to the suburbs and I said I would pick him up.

"Before I went to pick up Brent a wave of fear hit me–we knew absolutely NOTHING about one another. My mother’s voice was in the back of my head, “are you insane? meeting a man you’ve never met AND you’re letting him in your car?” Not being a social networker herself, the concept of meeting someone “you met on the internet” is ABSURD (I’m sure she’d use a much stronger word)!"

Good points... but doesn’t address the "psycho ex-girlfriend" dangers. Just because the person you’re meeting is nice, doesn’t necessarily mean you’re safe from getting stalked and threatened later on by a third  party. heehee ;)
